Cat’s Cradle Handicap Quotes


Jockey Quotes

JOE TALAMO, WARREN'S VENEDA, Winner: "I was glad I was able to get to the outside. That was the only concern for (Lewis) and I. It looked like (Sister Kate) was the only speed and I was fortunate enough to get around her. She's such a classy filly and obviously loves this track. I worked her before her last race (7 ¼ length optional claiming victory Oct. 13 at Santa Anita) and she's even better now than she was then. I think the farther the better with her."

Sharp Cat Stakes Quotes


Jockey Quotes

COREY NAKATANI, ARETHUSA, Winner: "She ran a big race. When Eoin (Harty) asked me to ride, he told me she's by A.P. Indy and would get the distance. I said, ‘Perfect, let's go get the money, boss.' My main thing was to just get her into a rhythm and she would take me at them. And that's what happened. Any time you can win a race like that with a 2-year-old filly, the future looks bright."
